Deputies searching for man accused of pawning stolen property from church

ST. STEPHEN, SC (WCSC) - The Berkeley County Sheriff's Office is asking the public for information on a man accused of pawning property stolen from a St. Stephen church.

Denzell Javon Carroll is also the primary suspect in the burglary and is wanted for questioning, according to Berkeley County Chief Deputy Mike Cochran.

Deputies say Carroll is believed to have broken into Calvary Reformed Episcopal Church on Feb. 13.

"It is really sad that someone would break into a house of worship in order to steal from them," Berkeley County Sheriff Duane Lewis said. "Our houses of worship are the cornerstone of many communities around the county and it saddens me to think that someone would do such a thing."

Lewis said deputies found some of the items stolen from the church in an area pawn shop and were able to identify Carroll.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Carroll is asked to call the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office at 843-719-4412 or Crime Stoppers at 843-554-1111.
